No advance notice is necessary for this walk-in placement test that is free of charge. Complete the registration form online using this link:

Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the test.

The test consists of four parts: a multiple-choice grammar test, a multiple-choice listening comprehension test, a one-page reading selection with 5 short-answer questions, and a written summary of the reading selection.  It takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the test.  It is in pencil-and-paper format, and there is no practice test on the web to access.  There is at least one test date per month with extra dates added before the semester begins. 

Visitors should park in the Red Hawk Garage.  Take the parking ticket with you so you can pay on either level 2, 4, or 5 before you return to your car. Use your validated parking ticket to exit the garage.

IMPORTANT:  This placement test is ONLY for students who have been accepted to a Montclair State University degree program. If you are interested in a non-credit ESL program, please visit
